Early in the month, it’s good to check in with your belief systems and the way that they influence your lifestyle. Jupiter has been lighting up your lifestyle and health routines house for quite a while now, blessing you with new health routines or food choices that may seem to just fall in your lap. The trick is deciding whether or not what your days hold are in line with your belief systems and your highest Self. Jupiter is moving into a retrograde motion on February 6th, which may present some challenges in making self-care happen or may cause you to realize how badly you need some R&R. A good thing for you right now could be a food journal or a new blender to use for delicious smoothies that are also nourishing. Taurus leans towards excess in food and drinks, so the tendency to indulge will surely be there with Jupiter, ruler of excesses, transiting your lifestyle house.
Venus is moving into Aries early this month, lighting up a part of your chart that is unconscious and very spiritual. This could be a time where a beautiful spiritual union is formed in the best possible manifestation of this transit, but it could also be a time where you don’t have your guard up for romantic scenarios that may be illusory and not what they seem. It’s good to give new beginnings a little bit of time to envelop and to use your best judgment, rose colored glasses aside.
Mercury will be joining the Sun in Aquarius on February 7th, so this is a time for you to be focusing on what you want your next career direction to be. Focusing on advancement and the way that you are perceived by the world out there is going to be of utmost importance, but just remember, it’s what you think of you that matters most. The Sun and Mercury at different times will be making happy aspects to Jupiter in Libra during its retrograde motion, so it’s a good time to think about ways to seek fulfillment from your daily work life as well as ways to schedule time for yourself to not think about the ins and outs of the workplace.
On February 10th, there’ll be an auspicious full moon lunar eclipse with the Sun in Aquarius and the moon in Leo. This will be a great time to be at home with your people- close friends and family, while still being mindful of some stuff that needs to be taken care of on the work front. This is the ultimate work-life balance.
On February 18th, the Sun will move into Pisces followed by Mercury on February 25th in your house of social networks, large groups of friends, hopes, dreams and windfalls of luck. This is a great time to examine your relationship to community and to see if the support network you have is lifting you up. It’s a great time to get out of the house and meet new people. These connections may lead to something awesome! The Sun as well as Mercury will connect with the South Node of the Moon in Pisces and oppose the North Node of the Moon in Virgo. It’s very wise during this transit that you make sure that you are expressing yourself creatively and allowing yourself to relax and have fun every once in a while. This is a great time to take an art class or to delve deep into another hobby you have been meaning to try.
On February 26th, there’s a new moon in Pisces. This is going to be an incredibly karmic time, ensuring that the people you meet in social situations are most likely here to teach you something very specific about yourself. Just make sure that you keep your wits about you as the moon is joining up with the Sun, Mercury, Neptune, the South Node and Chiron all in Pisces, which is a very nebulous sign as is. It’s a good time to take stock of what the past has taught us.
Late in the month, there may be some fear of yours that you may have to overcome. Mars is going to be joining Uranus in a part of your chart that is very spiritual and represents the unconscious mind, making a harsh aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, which will be pulling your beliefs into question. Uranus may unexpectedly stir up the fear that Pluto brings up, and Mars’ job is to excavate it. This may feel a bit like you are sifting around in your unconscious mind, but it’s only to show you that there’s nothing to fear. This Mars-Uranus conjunction will oppose Libra in your house of lifestyle choices, so try not to eat your feelings or rely too heavily on addictive behaviors. Instead, look into the darkness headfirst and turn on your flashlight as the resourceful Taurus you are.
